Which Digestive Enzymes Should I Take?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

There seem to be a ton of digestive enzymes brands out there - how do I know which ones are good? I know Digest Gold was mentioned in the Newbie 101 thread, but it's over $50 and I'd like to find something cheaper.



I have used several kinds successfully.  My practitioner recommended Similase Gluten-free Casein-free for me.  It worked well.  Later, I desired enzymes without a capsule.  I have been using Genuine N Zimes Dr. Howell"s Original Formula Extra Strength.  I order this from Azure Standard.  The canister is about $20  and has lasted about 4 months.  It is working for me.  I also have used brand I purchased at a natural food store successfully.  I don't think you need to spend 50 on it.  You do want a quality product though.

You're probably going to get a dozen different answers, but these are the ones I use: http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/p/nature-plus-acti-zyme-180-capsules/nt-1988

They're by Nature's Plus, which is a very reputable brand and they work really well for me.
